About this property

** No Onward Chain ** A rare opportunity to acquire a substantial detached family home situated in an elevated position enjoying superb views towards Dartmoor, set within large private gardens and within walking distance of the town centre.

This substantial family home was built in the 1960's and has not been on the open market for more than 44 years. Little Dolphins is set within a unique and truly magnificent setting with almost all the property enjoying wide open views across to the Beacon on Dartmoor. The property is set within private, established gardens extending to approximately half an acre with the house offering further potential to extend subject to necessary planning consents. On the ground floor the accommodation is generous in proportion with spacious and adaptable accommodation, including a potential self-contained annexe or separate home office if required.

The front door opens into a wide entrance hall leading into an impressive dining room with a large bay window commanding excellent views over the gardens and towards Dartmoor and sliding doors leading out to a terrace. The sitting room is a wonderful light room offering comfortable, family living space with fitted log burner and again enjoys superb views over the gardens and towards Dartmoor. There is a separate kitchen which has been fitted with a comprehensive range of units and enjoying a fine aspect. From the kitchen there is door into a separate side entrance lobby leading into a utility room and hobby room which could easily be adapted for use as an annexe or home office if required. From the hobby room there is a door leading to the integral garage. On the first floor there are 4 bedrooms (3 double and 1 single) including a family bathroom and a large master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The views from three of the bedrooms on the first floor are nothing short of extraordinary with a totally absorbing vista towards the Dartmoor Beacon.

Outside the gardens are magical and have been thoughtfully landscaped and nurtured over many years with wide expanses of lawn and an abundance of delicate flower borders and trees extending down on to a large lawn, known by our clients as the croquet lawn. From the lower lawn there are steps up to a raised terrace which extends the full width of the property offering a perfect place for entertaining while enjoying the glorious surroundings. To the side of the property there are various outbuildings including a single integral garage and various potting sheds and greenhouse. There is also further potential to extend the existing property or create another dwelling within the grounds (subject to the necessary planning consent being obtained). At the front of the property a block paved driveway providing parking for ample vehicles.

From the town, pass the Tesco store on your left and at the roundabout turn and pass over the River Erme. Follow the road as it turns sharply to the right and at the end turn left. Pass St John’s Church on your right and continue up the hill where the entrance drive to the property can be found on theright hand side.
